Implementing a successful legal technology project: Scoring the project before buying or building the technology
This three-part series of blogs form a guide to implementing a successful legal technology project.
Part 1 – Scoping the project before buying or building the technology
Part 2 – Ensuring the internal and external stakeholders are on board
Part 3 – Change management during and after implementation
While not a comprehensive guide, it highlights the key areas. With consideration and attention to these areas, your legal technology project will run much smoother.
In part one, we will answer the following questions:
Why use a scope document?
What should a scope document contain?
What steps should follow the creation of a scope document?
